The Essence of Survival

Quote from Author Unknown

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. 
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. 

Every morning a lion wakes up. 
It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. 

It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: 
when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

Don't predict the future. Whatever happens, happens for something good

PREGNANT DEER –  a fascinating story! 
In a forest, a pregnant deer is about to give birth.
She finds a remote grass field near a strong-flowing river.
This seems a safe place.
Suddenly labour pains begin.
At the same moment, dark clouds gather around above & lightning starts a forest fire. She looks to her left & sees a hunter with his bow extended pointed at her.
To her right, she spots a hungry lion approaching her.
What can the pregnant deer do?She is in labour!
What will happen?
Will the deer survive?
Will she give birth to a fawn?
Will the fawn survive?
Or will everything be burnt by the forest fire?
Will she perish to the hunters’ arrow?
Will she die a horrible death at the hands of the hungry lion approaching her?

She is constrained by the fire on the one side & the flowing river on te other & boxed in by her natural predators.
What does she do?
She focuses on giving birth to a new life?

The sequence of events that follows are:
-         Lightning strikes & blinds the hunter.
-         He releases the arrow which zips past the deer & strikes the hungry lion.
-         It starts to rain heavily, & the forest fire is slowly doused by the rain.
-         The deer gives birth to a healthy fawn.
In our life too, there are moments of choice when we are confronted on all sides with negative thoughts and possibilities.

Some thoughts are so powerful that they overcome us & overwhelm us.
May be  we can learn from the deer.
The priority of the deer, in that given moment, was simply to give birth to a baby.

The rest was not in her hands & any action or reaction that changed her focus would have likely resulted in death or disaster.
In the midst of any storm, do keep FOCUS, HOPE  and FAITH on God always.
He will never ever disappoint . NEVER.
